5 Reasons to Buy the Galaxy Note 9 & 3 Reasons to Wait

Published

on

This guide will take you through some reasons why you should, and shouldn’t, buy the new Samsung Galaxy Note 9 in 2019.

If you’re hunting for a new Android smartphone, the Galaxy S8, Galaxy Note 8, Galaxy S9, and Galaxy S10 should be on your shopping list.

The Samsung Galaxy S8, Galaxy S8+, and Galaxy Note 8 are cheaper than they once were and they’ve been upgraded to Samsung’s version of Android Pie.

These Galaxy devices and others, like Samsung’s Galaxy S7, should have your attention, but you’ll also want to add another Galaxy device to your shopping list.

The Galaxy Note 9 is a powerhouse. Samsung’s latest entry in the long-running Galaxy Note series comes with a long list of upgrades including a brand new S Pen stylus, a huge high-resolution display, a high-performance processor from Qualcomm, tons of storage space, and a massive battery.

The Galaxy Note 9 is getting cheaper and it’s certainly worth investigating if you’re looking for a powerful smartphone you can hold onto for multiple years.

With the Galaxy S10 5G arriving this month and Galaxy Note 10 rumors picking up, many people are trying to decide if they should buy the Galaxy Note 9 now or wait a few more days, weeks, or longer before making a decision.

In this guide we’ll take you through the best reasons to buy the Galaxy Note 9 right now and the best reasons to wait.

Buy If You Want Great Software Support

Buy If You Want Great Software Support

If you plan on keeping your next phone for several years, consider buying the Galaxy Note 9. 

Samsung didn't advertise this on stage during the Galaxy Note 9 launch event, but the device should receive at least two years of major Android OS upgrades with bug fixes and security updates mixed in.  

So while you might be tempted to skip the Galaxy Note 9 and go with a cheaper alternative like the Galaxy Note 8, Galaxy S8 or Galaxy S7, software support for those devices will come to an end much faster.

The Samsung Galaxy Note 9's hardware upgrades ensures the device will get feature-rich versions of Samsung's upgrades for several years to come. Samsung's Android updates for older phones are often limited by their aging hardware. 

The Samsung Galaxy Note 9 was one of the first Galaxy devices to run Android 8.1 Oreo, a newer version of Oreo, and it was one of the first Galaxy devices running Samsung's Android 9.0 Pie update with One UI.

The Galaxy Note 9 is also running Samsung's Bixby 2.0 assistant. Bixby 2.0 comes with improvements to the AI's accuracy, an improved SDK, better support for third-party applications. As of right now you can use Bixby to launch third party apps, but you can't do much else.

Bixby 2.0 will eventually make it onto other devices, but you'll likely have to wait for Samsung to issue it with a major software update.

If you plan on keeping your next phone for several years and you think you might want the latest features, fixes, and patches without having to install custom software, think about going with the Samsung Galaxy Note 9 over an older Galaxy phone.

    As long as my Note 8 is up and running I’ll take a wait and see stance on the 9. I can afford to wait until the prices drop because I know it’s going to premiere at or near the $1K mark.

    Our favourite is that this silver quilt coat with pockets along with a detachable hood
    perfect for virtually any casual outing. One way to make a dress-up
    costume complete is to use contrasting colors.
    Instead, are going to taking notice of one’s fashionable sunglasses using
    the beautiful gemstones.
